and if only you were lucky enough to live outside the US, in the rest of the world, the 325is was a 24 valve

iS i s always a coupe, always manual, nice body kit - not as extreme as the M was, but enough to stand out from the non S and the 318iS
also had 15" 5 stud wheels(basketweaves)

I'm pretty sure you could buy an automatic 325is.
His is, I think. They also retained the 4x100mm bolt pattern, not 5.

Are overhead warning lights that special?
I have them in my four-door Eta.

Assuming that his statement regarding all manual 325ises is correct, he's saying that we're unlucky to be on the continent where they're also automatic. Although I'd bet they're automatic everywhere.
